Account Manager

The Account Manager is the link between the client and the rest of the agency: understanding the core issue the client needs to resolve, in order to translate it into an inspiring brief for the strategic and creative departments, while keeping budget and timing in mind at all times. In an age where client briefings are seldom single-minded, it’s a challenge to identify the real issues that need to be tackled so they can lead to problem-solving campaigns.

Event Manager

As Event Manager, you are responsible for the daily supervision of a team of project managers. Controlling/adjusting, distributing projects, etc. Collecting briefings, drafting proposals, preparing budgets. And of course, the organisation of events itself.

Project Developer

Event management for clients

Digital Project Manager

As a Digital Project Manager, you’ll be guiding accounts, designers, developers and clients through their briefings: corporate websites, marketing platforms, applications, e-mailings, banner advertising, and more. A DPM defines scope, budgets, and timings on a daily basis. It’s your job to keep the project on track.

Digital Designer

A Digital/Motion Designer is responsible for design and case creation of campaigns, ranging from graphical styles to user interfaces and motion design. You are also the go-to for logo and product design.

Conceptual Copywriter

The Copywriter's job is to find great concepts for brands based on their needs, and find the right words to communicate them. After a concept is sold to a client, you work closely together with each member of the agency to execute it in the best possible way.

Art Director

Coming up with concepts for advertising campaigns and developing these ideas in the best, most beautiful way possible. An Art Director determines the artistic styles that will be used to bring ideas to life. He or she ensures that the implementers (graphic designers, directors, illustrators, etc.) shape the idea, like the ones that play in his or her mind.

UX Designer & UI Designer

The responsibility of a UX Designer is to ensure that the website/app logically flows from one step to the next. One way that a UX Designer might do this, is by creating sketches and prototypes. By identifying visual and functional stumbling blocks, he/she works to create an optimal user experience.

Digital CD

The Digital Creative Director deals with the challenge of bringing the best creatives together, and making sure that their ideas align with the current digital world and the customers’ reality. You help them to ensure that the technology is not an obstacle to creation that generates a very clear result where no one says: “Hey, this idea is digital!” (except in the advertising competitions). But rather: “Hey, it’s magic; what a good idea!”

Strategic Director

First of all, as Strategic director, you help brands to tell a relevant and inspiring story. Then, you try to inspire the creatives in the process with this story and make sure the final result is in line with the brand story.

Motion Designer

Telling stories is what you do: a Video Designer visualises ideas with moving images. Since video is the future of everything, video is also present in every job. Even outdoor posters switched to screens with moving images. 90% of social media consists of video, which is constantly challenging you with creative formats. The biggest change? The shift to vertical video.

Content Copywriter/Journalist

A Content Copywriter is always on the lookout for ideas for new articles, brainstorming with co-workers about themes and formats, editorial client meetings, interviewing passionate people, writing sharp texts, coming up with show-stopping headlines and leads that pull you into story.
